Rs 5,000 to be imposed on NIT-Srinagar students watching India-Pak match in groups

Srinagar: The National Institute of Technology (NIT) has requested that its students refrain from watching Sunday's India-Pakistan Asia Cup cricket match in groups or from posting anything about it on social media.

The institute management has ordered the students to stay in their assigned rooms during the game, according to a notice issued by the dean of students' welfare.

"Students are aware that a cricket series involving various nations is going on in the Dubai International Stadium. Students are hereby directed to take sports as a game and not create any kind of indiscipline in the institute/hostel," the notice read.

During Sunday's match, the students have been directed to remain in their allotted rooms and not allow other students to enter their rooms and watch the match in groups, it said."If there is a group of students watching the match in a particular room, then the students to whom that particular room is allotted will be debarred from the institute hostel accommodation and a fine of at least Rs 5,000 will be imposed on all the students involved," the NIT said.

The students have also been directed to avoid posting any material related to the match on social media platforms.

Furthermore, they have been instructed not to step out of the hostel rooms during or after the match.

In 2016, clashes broke out at the institute between outstation and local students following India's defeat to the West Indies in the T-20 World Cup semi-final, leading to a closure of the NIT for days.
